AMPHIBIANS

What are Amphibians?

Amphibians are animals that live both in the water and on land. Like reptiles, amphibians are cold-blooded, but they have smooth, moist skin instead of scales.

Did you know?

The largest living amphibian is the Chinese Giant Salamander (Andrias davidianus) at 5 feet 11 inches long (1.8 m). The smallest known amphibian (and smallest vertebrate in the world) is Paedophryne amauenisis, a frog species from Papua New Guinea; it measures at 0.30 inches (7.7 mm) in length.
